Mescaline: A Neglected Tool for Psychotherapy
There are classic psychedelics (psilocybin, LSD, DMT) and non-classic psychedelics (ketamine, MDMA) that receive a lot of scientific and public attention regarding their potential mental health benefits. These are substances that, when combined with psychotherapy, can be helpful in resolving or alleviating conditions such as depressive and anxiety disorders, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and addiction. There are also other non-classic psychedelics that are receiving increased attention for their ability to effectively improve people’s mental health, including 5-MeO-DMT and ibogaine.
